It was a dark and dreary day the afternoon I met up with this family at their home in Marin. Their house still smelled like turkey cooking – I showed up the day after Thanksgiving. We played around the house and outside, utilizing their amazing surroundings as much as possible. Heaven on earth. We ended the session by starting an apple pie, something they love to do together. And lovely Lucia sent me back to my hotel with a bag of apples and pears to share with my family.
Was that their backyard? I am in love! Lovin’ that couch outdoors.
So much awesome in one session!!! :)
Tara, this session is so great! I definitely think it’s one of my all-time favorites of yours. It was fun to see the shots of them in the trees where I am so used to seeing beaches. Very, very cool! Awesome work, as ususal! ;)
dude! you are such an amazing family photographer!! these are perfect!
WOW simply in awe again! Tara, you are incredible! <3 Much love.
…you nailed this.
and you make it look like anything BUT dark & dreary!!! Stunning and full of life, as always.
Tara, these are so great. There is so much to see and so much personality. Lovely.
I love all of the different places, it really captures their personality!
These photos feel so natural. I love them.
Love these, especially love the Bon Jovi t-shirt the littlest boy is wearing!! Beautiful home these people have
Are you kidding me…that swing and those steps in the woods are in their back yard?! How awesome. What a fun shoot.
Total awesomeness! Thanks for sharing them with us.
dear tara whitney, i love you.
fabulous! fabulous! fabulous!
Oh goodness. I’m immediately nostalgic for the rope swing I had as a kid. Beautiful.
fabulous! esp love the one of them on the red/white couch!
i love these Tara! i also am in love with white interiors! the hats, the striped couch, the forest with the rope swing – all fun!!
These are so inspired Tara. Thank you for sharing.
you have such a special gift for family sessions. these are amazing!!!
I love the first one with the fedoras – made me smile! What a gorgeous family! You captured them so beautifully. It is fun to see the environment change (woodsy instead of beaches) and to see the family in their gorgeous home. Wish I could move in with them :-)! (And have some of that apple pie!)
Phenomenal work, as always!
Great photos! That backyard reminds me of twilight!
What a beautiful family. I love how your photos really capture the love they share.
so heartwarming. love their home and surroundings.
beautiful family and such real down to earth
Things I love about these photos….the blue ball in the mirror reflection. The boy tugging his Dad’s ear (my Drew is an infamous ear massager so it tugs on my heartstrings), the couch cuddling, and the cooking. I love them all to be quite honest, but those were my faves :)
you captured it all, as usual. . .silliness, cuddliness, craziness, and lovelyness!
uh excuse me? the mom? could she look any better in jeans? could I please look like that for one day???
i am in awe of the beauty you capture in people tara….you have a wonderful gift.
